U.S. Congressional Delegation Meets with President Karzai


US Senator Hillary Clinton, Senator Evan Bayh and Representative John McHugh traveled to Afghanistan on January 14 for talks with President Hamid Karzai including discussions on whether more US troops should be sent to fight the Taliban insurgency. The dialogue included in-depth discussions of security, bi-lateral relations, reconstruction and women's rights.

Upon her return, Senator Clinton expressed confidence in the progress being made in Afghanistan, but cautioned, “We’ve got to get more support there to make sure we try to finish off the Taliban and al-Qaida that are regrouping, coming across the border. We expect a big spring offensive.”
